This is a book of wisdom and insight that explains how providential are the trials through which the Catholic Church is now passing. The need of the Papal Primacy to ensure Christian unity; the true meaning of the Priesthood as a sacrament and not a mere ministry; the necessity of the Eucharist as the Sacrifice of the Savior now offering Himself on our altars; the role of the Bishops as successors of the Apostles, united with the successor of St. Peter, the Bishop of Rome; the value of suffering in union with Christ crucified; the indispensable service of the laity in the apostolate - all these themes receive from Cardinal Ratzinger new clarity and depth.

It is now just over twenty-five years since the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It is also more than thirty-five years since St. John Paul II called for a new evangelization to be characterized by a new ardor, a new expression, and new methods. The conviction common to the contributors in this volume is that the Catechism flows from just such an ardor. Speaking the Truth in Love draws together a group of Catholic scholars and field practitioners to focus on the capacity of the Catechism to be a powerful point for the renewal of Christian catechesis, education, and culture through its reclamation of the Christian heritage, its explanatory power, and its compelling articulation of a civilization characterized by faith, hope, and love. A special focus of the book is how the Catechism provides a creative reference point for pedagogical renewal in the Church. “Since the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church in 1992, catechists and pastors of souls have discovered how it has served as a great instrument of the New Evangelization. We have awaited this volume as a mature reflection on its vital place in the hope expressed by St. John Paul II for a springtime of New Evangelization. In these pages you will find testimony on how, through the Catechism, this springtime is already taking shape.” —Most Rev. Mark Davies, Bishop of Shrewsbury, Province of Birmingham, England

This second edition of Living in the Gap is prompted by the Church’s celebration throughout 2015 of a Year for Consecrated Life to mark both the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council and the 50th anniversary of Perfectae Caritatis, “The Decree on the Adaptation and Renewal of Religious Life.” The book wishes to raise awareness of the importance of the vocation to the consecrated life in the life of Church and to help religious in their efforts towards the new evangelization. The challenge before religious today and before all those called to evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty, and obedience is to do their best to narrow the gap between vision and reality. The question they should be asking themselves is not whether the gap between vision and reality exists in their lives, but whether it is getting larger or smaller.

We yearn for communion with one another because of God?s yearning for communion with us. Fr. Billy reminds us that communion, according to Pope John Paul II?s Novo Millennio Ineunte, lies at the very heart of the Christian message. Contemplating the other. Living in unity. Accepting each other as?gift.? Sharing each other?s burdens. It would be difficult to come up with a more comprehensive vision of living in right relationship with others. Although meant to be practiced by everyone, the?spirituality of communion? has special significance for religious, since they are called to be?experts? in its daily practice. Fr. Billy points to the striking benefits and authentic renewal that embracing a?spirituality of communion? can bring to the life of men and women religious and their communities. He offers companionship and concrete strategies for helping to help narrow the?gap? between the vision of what we desire to become and the reality of who we are. Each chapter opens with an epigram about religious life and closes with a series of reflection questions.
